john kerry remained in the region. we get more tonight from nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell. >> reporter: john kerry, with jordan's king abdullah at his side, stayed behind, wasting no time trying to deliver on the president's promise of a fresh start for middle east diplomacy. shuttling from the king to an afternoon meeting in amman with palestinian president mahmoud abbas, then a quick trip to jerusalem for dinner with israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu. before returning to amman. kerry is also dealing with an even more urgent crisis for both israel and jordan. the war next door in syria. u.s. and israeli intelligence say the assad regime is poised to use chemical weapons. >> once you let that situation spin out of control, it's very hard to -- to stop, and can have enormous spillover effects across the region. >> reporter: the cia is already training selected rebel groups to guard against a takeover by more radical elements once assad falls. the regime's weakness was demonstrated again thursday, by a suicide bombing at a damascus mosque. killing a

a coherent syrian opposition council. now you have the secretary kerry, who is deeply involved in that effort as well. we are providing not just advice, but training and capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and be able to provide direct services for people inside of syria, including the relief efforts that obviously we are seen here in jordan, but there is a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting maybe is, why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and you know, i think it is fair to say that the united states oftentimes it finds itself in situations where if it goes in militarily, and if it does not, then people say, why are you doing something militarily? and you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contribute to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context, an international context, because we think our experience shows when we lead, but we are also working with others like the jordanians,
john kerry made a surprise visit to baghdad earlier today where he spoke to prime minister nuri al maliki. secretary kerry is now in amman, jordan, and so is chief foreign affairs correspondents andrea mitchell, traveling with the secretary of state. she joins us by phone now. andrea, what did secretary kerry accomplish with this trip to baghdad? >> reporter: well, it was a very tough trip and a tough message, because we went to baghdad, a quick visit. surprise, under tight security and secrecy, for obvious reasons, because ten years ar the war, there still are terror attacks. last week, when dozens were killed in baghdad. he was in a secure place in the embassy and then visiting prime minister maliki and the speaker of the parliament in iraq in their residences, but his message to mallski that the maliki government is permits iran to send weapons and fighters, overflight, loaded with weapons and fighters, to prop up assad in syria and that this is something that americans and the congress, that the administration, cannot understand or tolerate, and as kerry told us afterwards, it
. >>> happening now -- secretary of state john kerry has arrived in afghanistan on an unannounced visit. kerry is meeting with afghan president, hamid karzai, amid concerns that karzai may be jepertiseing progress in the war there -- jeopardizing progress in the war there. he also met with anotherry al- nourile al-maliki -- nouri al- maliki. negotiations broke down over whether the u.s. would have the power to block the release of some detainees. an agreement over the weekend gives the u.s. the power to veto the release of prisoners. >>> the death of a soldier from hayward is being mourned by his family and friends. james grissan died on thursday after being wounded in afghanistan. he was a graduate of mount eden high school, earned an associate's degree from the arts of san francisco. he is survived by his wife, parents and sister. >>> the parents of a contra costa county marine killed in a murder-suicide will fly to washington, d.c. this week to bring the body of their daughter home. officials say sergeant eusebio lopez of pacifica shot and killed 19-year-old sara castromata of oakley on thu
to happen. what i can guarantee is we'll make the effort. what i can guarantee is that secretary kerry will be spending a good deal of time in discussions with the parties where i can assure you that nobody feels a greater interest in us achieving this than his majesty, and so we're just going to keep on plugging away. the one thing i did say, i think to both sides is the window of opportunity still exists but it is getting more and more difficult. the mistrust is building instead of ebbing. the logistics of providing security for israel get more difficult with new technologies. and the logistics are creating a continuous and functioning palestinian state become more difficult with settlements. so both sides have to begin to think about their long term streeng interests, instead of worrying about can i gain a short term tactical advantage here or there? and say to themselves, what is the big picture and how do we get this done? that's ultimately what i believe both people want. i think it was very interesting that my speech in jerusalem, some of the strongest applause came when i addre
kerry there talking. president obama is supposed to be awarded the medal of distinction at this dinner. when that happens, we will bring it to you live. again, live pictures there as the president awaits the medal of distinction. martin fletcher is standing by in jerusalem with the very latest for us. good to see you, sir. let's start with the president's speech. how was it received, both in the hall and how was it received by israelis watching it on television? >> reporter: well, i think, craig, it was received very well indeed. surprisingly well. he spoke so clearly and confidently and i think really hit all the points that israelis wanted to hear. one of the surprising things, the reaction of the 600 students from universities around israel that were in the audience, was that they applauded repeatedly. there were several standing ovations. most surprising to me anyway, the more often president obama called for a palestinian state existing in peace alongside israel, the more often he said that, the greater the applause was for the students. it was a real message not only from preside
to pespearhead the effor to form a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry, deeply involved in that effort as well. we're providing not just advice, not just words, but we're providing resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria, including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan. but there are a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarymilit. i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in situation where it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily and if it doesn't go in militarily. then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multi laterlat context, in an international context, becaus
and intelligence allies in the region not speaking has been a huge, huge problem. so, the president-- john kerry, when he went to archg raon his maten trip as secretary of state, talkedded to erdjuan, and the president when he got here at his very first meeting with netanyahied with brought it up, and has been working it we're told each time they met. so it was set up that they went to the airport. they had a trailer set up, and netanyahi and obama went in and the call was made. and we were all wondering-- it took something like half an hour. and we wondered why so long, why was the president there, why did he get on the phone. what we're told is both netanyahu and erdjuan required the president to be there, for each one that gave that leader cover to do this sort of forced public. erdogan could say president obama has explained that it's very, very important for to us at least cooperate on security intelligence. i need to do this for my friend barack obama, and netanyahu could make the same case for the people criticizing him at home for apologizing to erdogan. >> you mentioned syria. when the
24 or so hours here in jordan. and while the president leaves secretary of state john kerry, alex, it's worth noting is going to stay behind, he has meetings scheduled today here in jordan with the head of the palestinian authority, mahmoud abbas. and then he returns to israel a little bit later, where he'll be meeting for dinner with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. just one more indication of the commitment of this administration to try to really revive the peace talks in this region. >> let's hope something fruitful comes from that. thank you very much peter alexander in amman, jordan. >>> the president also focused on gun control today in his weekly address this morning. he's urging congress to hold a vote on several proposed measures which include making it harder for criminals and people with severe mental illness from getting their hands on guns. and reinstating a ban on military-style assault weapons. >> -- shouldn't be controversial. they're commonsense. they're supported by a majority of the american people. and i urge the senate and the house to give each of them a vote.

success. just ask john kerry. what was the problem for the debates? the number of them or the participants? one more takeaway from the report, if you can't beat them, join them. the report says this. quote, well-funded conservative groups should seek to hire activists to attract democratic incumbents and cameras with -- after learning the hard way what video cameras did to todd aiken, george allen, even many murdoch. republicans want to return the favor, clearly. while republicans try to rehabilitate the party's image they have a more fundamental problem to solve. all the process fixes in the world can't deal with the basic question. who are they? as the gop tries to solve this mini identity crisis, feuds are breaking out all over as people try to move around and box each other out to decide who gets to play this game. those divisions were on full display at this weekend's cpac convention as republicans argued about whether the gop needs to expand i wants appeal or reject moderation and return to conservative principles. and debated what exactly those core principles are. former alaska gov

. now you've got secretary kerry who's deeply involved in that effort as well. and we are providing not just words but resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan, but there are a whole bunch of people who are internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily. and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily, then it's criticized for going in militarily. and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily. and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context and international context because we think our experience shows that when we lead but we are also wo
thing. it's clear that the administration is -- if you looked at senator kerry's trip, every day on that trip, you saw him in a sense evolving in terms of what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at and a fresh look at what can be done, and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good. thank you. david. >> thank you. everyone. it's good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday and i must say i'm -- well, dennis and i have our own cop very generalses. i might be a little less upbeat, having returned from there, and it could be a question of how these things are put forward. but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i cannot see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip. it really is two trips in one act least to israel. the public part, israel, you'd be hard pressed to find a ford minivan reside full of israel yous who are antiamerican whatever if the differences have been with obama, for the most part, every stop along the vis
together? wants to kerry prioritize this among half a dozen issues, and you have a new israeli government that cannot help deal with this issue. i don't think this president wants the next four years a two state solution to expire. that is a strong statement. but that is really true when you think of the pace of settlement activity. that is not a big concern. even if you can do a grand deal , you can preserve the option for a two state solution, that is very important. even though i do not think there is any drama or confrontation between these two leaders now, i think it would be a mistake, because everyone in washington has forgotten about the palestinian issue, and people in the middle east have bigger issues on their own agendas, but somehow this issue would fade out. upsurgehere will be an you will beor digging fresh graves and be left with old problems. each side knows that this issue is not going away. it would be a mistake to put the focus on some sort of immediate confrontation. i don't say that. that these two have worked with the palestinians to find a way out. i made my point
. the john kerry the new secretary of state wants to see what is is possible. he wants therefore to try to set the groundwork for it. he is doing that with this speech. i think the facts on the ground are so difficulty to overcome, the suspicions are so difficult to overcome i depth see it happening. jon: as virtually every american president found in recent memory. >> yes. jon: paul gigot, thank you. you can catch paul this weekend when he hosts the "journal editorial report" tomorrow 2:00 p.m. eastern time here on fox news channel. uma: right now folks in one city are dropping sandbags, trying to get ahead of what could be a devastating flood. how they're preparing for the worst in fargo and will it be enough? >>> now could be your chance to take home a piece of space history believe it or not but it's going to cost you. we'll bring you those details next. jon: right now, bitters are getting amped up hoping to take a home a piece of space history. hundreds of items go up for auction ad the sale is expected to rake in big bucks. david lee miller has details from our new york city newsr
